Alita is a creation from an age of despair. Found by the mysterious Dr. Ido while trolling for cyborg parts, Alita becomes a lethal, dangerous being. She cannot remember who she is, or where she came from. But to Dr. Ido, the truth is all too clear. She is the one being who can break the cycle of death and destruction left behind from Tiphares. But to accomplish her true purpose, she must fight and kill. And that is where Alita's true significance comes to bear. She is an angel from heaven. She is an angel of death.Written by
The manga series is titled "Battle Angel Alita," but the movie is titled Alita: Battle Angel (2019). In 2010, producer Jon Landau commented, "I'm telling people that we have to call it 'Alita: Battle Angel,' because Jim (James Cameron) only does T&A movies." Most of James Cameron's movie titles begin with the letter "A" or "T," such as Titanic (1997), Aliens (1986), The Terminator (1984), The Abyss (1989), True Lies (1994), and Avatar (2009). See more »

Marvelous effect with some great actions make this movie not to be missed seeing it in the big screen. But the thing I love the most is Alita herself. There were a few times I had a smile on myself watching Alita as she was so loveable and badass.
Really really hope it will goes beyond just this one movie as the world building in Alita was so fascinating and of course, need to see more Alita.
